Transforming the Communities of Northern Minnesota by Transforming our Leaders



We are different than your traditional chamber in that we are a for-profit LLC, Membership Community built for chambers, small businesses, and non-profits in Northern Minnesota. We are focused on three main things.

Leadership Development

We want to Transform Communities by Transforming its Leaders using Faith-Based Leadership Development Tools and Curriculums. We want to equip business and professional men and women to lead well and impact their communities.

Professional Development

Every month we hold an in-depth workshop on a specific, timely tactic that you can attend live or watch the recording. We take the guesswork and secrets out of digital marketing to help make rapid business growth available to EVERYONE.

Storytelling and Promotion

We use Organic & Paid Media, Print Magazines, and Digital Tools, to Promote your business and the Region of Northern Minnesota through Immersive Storytelling. Immersive storytelling is to an extent, in its infancy. By becoming an early adopter in this medium you can drive business growth and innovation and experience higher growth in revenue and market position.

As a Membership Community that represents the region of Northern Minnesota, our goal is to create economic prosperity by facilitating community leaders. We believe every business can get behind working together to elevate our economy, all of us doing our part. These are the values that guide our work and culture:


We focus on big opportunities and challenges for regional prosperity. Our members and staff are in the forefront of creating solutions.

Team Integrity

We collaborate with community organizations and partners on common goals. Teamwork is essential to success, and we avoid personal agendas. As we work on difficult issues, we model respect, truthfulness, and candor. We strive to provide the highest level of customer service to our members and constituents.


We measure our work and own our results. We work quickly, with an emphasis on quality and prioritization. We set clear goals and expectations, and we strive to exceed them.
